Two articles of interest for law school applicants or students to be:
- A proposed ban on wireless at Harvard Law is generating controversy. Apparently students prefer to instant message than pay attention to classroom discussion. The school is considering a ban on wireless in the classroom. Socrates is probably rolling over in his grave. Other law schools may be tempted to follow HLS’ lead.
- According to The Wall St. Journal, another controversy is brewing in legal academia: To have an undergrad major in the law or not. A group of professors advocate having a law major focused on broader concerns than are typically considered in law school, such as the place of law in society. This group does not believe that this should replace law school (Heaven forbid!) or that it would become the automatic pre-law major. Opponents, like Professor Robert Weisberg of Stanford Law School, fear these undergrad majors may degenerate into "a Cliffs Notes version of law school."
